DENVER — A bill to establish a financial services co-operative to serve licensed marijuana dispensaries in the state was passed Wednesday by Colorado lawmakers.

The approval of "cannabis credit co-operatives" came on the final day of the legislative session. The final approval came after both chambers of the General Assembly cleared their own versions of the bill. The bill now heads to Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper for his signature.
